COSTA MESA, Calif. - Despite the resulting exhaustion of playing five matches in a 30-hour span, Vanguard appeared determined as it took the floor for one final Concordia Labor Day Festival match against Westminster (Utah). It took just three sets for The Pride to accomplish its goal of going unbeaten (5-0) in the two-day tournament, and it was well worth it as the No. 22 Lions emerged from the grueling weekend with a 7-3 overall record.
